‘Pine Hill’

6537m2 (over 1.5 acres). Classic 1920’s 4 bedroom stone home comprising elegant period features all embraced in a beautiful lush garden setting. Shedding, views and more in a near city location.

LAND: 6537m2 (over 1.5 acres). Rarely do properties become available that are so close to a C.B.D. yet are located in a scenic, leafy hills setting. Being only minutes from the top of Magill Road, the eastern suburbs and the city are a very simple and short commute away, which highlights the popularity of the district. The property has been loved and enjoyed by its current owners for almost 30 years and the creation of the gardens incorporates the many natural features with the introduction of plants that now form this delightful environment. There is a strong influence of camellias, roses and daffodils amongst the many varieties of plants that thrive in this climate. The best way to appreciate the grounds, which include an ornamental dam, is to enjoy a slow stroll through them. Having been established, the gardens are mature so future input can be as involved or as minimal as you want. There are two access points to the property which enables drive through capabilities. The rear access is especially handy when gaining entry to the shed. The tall shade trees and lower foliage attract an array of birds which seem to be oblivious to your presence whether you’re relaxing in the paved courtyard or wandering the property. Be prepared to share the property with the koalas that frequent the property. Spectacular sunsets and glimpses of the Gulf are all part of the special appeal this property provides.

RESIDENCE: Constructed in 1926, this classic looking, stone and brick home, with heritage tones, obtains its impressive look thanks to the traditional concrete stairs that lead to the front verandah, which has solid pillars and low walls. Sitting on this platform style porch, overlooking the grounds and taking in the views, is what it’s all about.

RESIDENCE Cont. Stepping inside, the elegance of its era is immediately evident with the high ceilings, tall skirtings and ornate architraves that are consistent through the home. Separated by the wide entrance foyer are the two living rooms. The lounge has a slow combustion heater and a split system unit whilst the dining room has an open fire place. Alternatively, meals can be enjoyed in the country orientated kitchen, where polished timbers combine with modern appliances. The enclosed sunroom, that flanks the front and western verandahs, is another option for living. A second open fireplace is in the main bedroom which also has a split system airconditioner. All 4 bedrooms are of a good size with separate external entry to the back bedroom. A huge mirror in the bathroom enhances the light. The warm and neutral tones throughout the home are complementary to the home’s design.

IMPROVEMENTS: Utilised as a workshop, the largest of the sheds, that measures 30’ x 25’, has a concrete floor, power with sliding doors at the front and side, access and useability is very convenient. A full length, wide, attached verandah provides additional undercover options. A freestanding single shed is 16’ x 10’ and is good for the garden tools, with other sundries including a wood shelter. Water is collected and stored in a series of tanks totalling approximately 50,000 litres with ample provisions for additional tanks if need be.
